Summer time = escape Brooklyn time.
Escape Brooklyn time = exploring new places time.
This year for the 4th of July I took off for Bovina, NY. Bovina is a quaint and tiny town in the Catskills in upstate New York. It is warm and open hearted to urbanites and allows all visitors to forget their woes for a few days.
I, of course, carried with me on the bus upstate, my travel bag full of the most recently hand sewn swimsuits I'd made. I figured if anything they'd be used to swim in case someone forgot a suit. However, after a day of sweltering sun we found ourselves running around the back pasture in the swimsuits I had brought, escaping from the heat with the joy of being able to play dress up.
